SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez is traveling to political events this week in Tennessee and Texas.
The governor's political adviser said Martinez spoke Wednesday at a Republican State Leadership Committee luncheon in Nashville and then returned to New Mexico. The event was part of a project to recruit and elect more Republican women to state and local offices.
Adviser Jay McCleskey said the GOP group covered the governor's travel expenses.
Martinez heads to Texas on Thursday for political events in Austin and Houston. She's raising money for the Republican Governors Association as well as her re-election committee and her political action committee called SusanaPAC.
The governor returns to New Mexico on Friday.
McCleskey said the governor's political organization will cover the costs of the Texas trip.
